make portableapps autorun

make portableapps start automatically when the device is plugged in.

It does

At least it prompts and asks if you'd like to run it on WinXP SP2 (at least the default settings... unless they've been changed). If you have a different OS, you'll need to either:
1. Modify the registry
2. Install a program locally to watch for changes in plugged in devices and run it

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

not always :^(

I some of the XP SP2 PCs I use I get the standard popup with PAM as the default choice but on others the popup does NOT list PAM. So I have to scroll down to Open Folder and execute a link to PAM that I put in root for quick access.

Like I said

Default is to show it. Some PCs have been changed from the default and will either not show what's specified in the autorun.inf. Some won't display a choice of what to do at all.

The weird thing

is that it's not consistant. While they all now show the popup asking what to do, sometimes the popup has PAM as the default action and other times it's not listed at all.

Different configs

Like I said, some PCs are configured differently from the default.
